About Me

I am board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics.

This means that I spend most of my time devoted to caring for whole families, across the age spectrum. I focus on preventive medicine, chronic disease management and coordination of care across the health system.

I’m most interested in quality improvement and improving the delivery of health care for everyone.

What I enjoy most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is working with colleagues in various specialties and providing care for whole families in one office.

I enjoy spending time with my two children and husband. I also like reading and spending time outdoors.

Dr. Nazhat Taj-schaal was very thorough in her examination of all aspects of my health. She explained the tests that she was ordering, and telephoned me with the results. She is an excellent doctor, and a very caring person.

Dr Taj is the most remarkable doctor I have ever had. She is brilliant, compassionate and genuinely cares about my health. She never rushes a visit and always always goes beyond what is "required." Everything is explained in detail and she errs on the side of caution. She has a very approachable demeanor which is very important to the patient doctor relationship. She smiles and is kind. I feel very luck to have Dr Taj as my doctor
